Not far from the sweeping Italian gardens of the Getty Villa in the Pacific Palisades, this newly listed mansion rests on its own epic perch overlooking the sea. The 9,500 square-foot residence has been remodeled and transformed, “with a fresh, innovative style,” reveals listing agent, Mary Lu Tuthill of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Brentwood. “It’s one of the most beautiful estates in Los Angeles, with panoramic views from Palos Verdes to Malibu.”
One step inside its gates, and you’ll encounter the exact vision Tuthill describes. Well-designed public spaces—a living room, family room and formal dining room—offer indoor/outdoor living, with seamless flow straight to lush greenery and a scene of captivating ocean’s blue.
The master retreat reveals a soothing, romantic escape with a private office, library/sitting room and a dramatic balcony overlooking the Pacific. Three additional guest suites are upstairs, providing plenty of privacy. On the lower level, you’ll find a theatre, gym, an all-purpose room and a bath—ideal for guests.
However, it’s the scenic gardens that steal the show. There are gorgeous outdoor “living rooms” for year-round Southern California entertaining set against an enchanting allee of olive trees with the majestic sea as its backdrop.
The estate’s surroundings are “intimate, light and airy by day, with sunlight bouncing off the water, and at night, the interior glows as darkness transforms the expansive grounds into a mysterious shaded perimeter with the fireworks display of lights along the bay,” describes Tuthill. “When you see this home for the first time, it will take your breath away. You must experience it to believe it.”
No doubt, this special residence is a place of “peaceful refuge and contentment,” a villa of astounding treasure …just like another celebrated villa resting on high just a few miles away.
